Some Evidence Tossed Out In Lisa Nowak Case

Looks like a good amount of the evidence in the Lisa Nowak case is being thrown out.

Because the police coerced her after she had not slept for at least 24 hours, comments she made while talking to police will not be admissable as evidence and neither will the contents of her BMW, including maps to Colleen Shipman's house, garbage bags, latex gloves, and soiled diapers.

Oh, drat ... and I was so looking forward to getting a rational explanation on what the dirty diapers were doing in the car.

However, the contents of the duffel bag Lisa Nowak was carrying - a ballpeen hammer, buck knife, BB gun resembling a real 9mm pistol, gloves and six feet of rubber tubing will remain in the case and will probably get her put away SOMEWHERE for a good, long while.

Lisa Nowak has been charged with attempted kidnapping, battery and burglary with assault. She currently has in a plea of not guilty, although her attorney has filed papers indicating an intent to change the plea to not guilty by reason of insanity.

For those of you who missed this one for whatever reason, back in February then-space shuttle astronaut Lisa Nowak embarked upon a hazardous journey from Texas to Florida to confront Colleen Shipman, girlfriend of Bill Oefelein, with whom Lisa Nowak seemed to have develop a pretty nasty obsession, reminiscent in some ways of course to this whole Laketa Cole / Whitney Fields / Cornelius Scroggins flap going on here in Cincinnati.

Yep ... looks like serial dating is taking on a whole new dimension these days ...
